Quake (PC)

Quake review (PC)

Reviewed on December 30, 2011

Quake still absolutely stands up today. Its visuals might be pixellated, the environments often rather monochrome, as became the running gag. Yet the design of the world is tremendous, the levels balanced, structured and elegantly paced. The variety on display, despite the vast swathes of brown, dwarfs that of most modern games as well.

Quake II (PC)

Quake II review (PC)

Reviewed on December 30, 2011

Enemies dart and dodge, firing sprays of bullets in the final seconds of their lives, trying everything they can to bring you down, even if it means losing their own lives in the process. The range of enemies on display is perhaps the only area in which Quake II rivals the variety of its predecessor, too.

Planescape: Torment (PC)

Planescape: Torment review (PC)

Reviewed on December 30, 2011

Planescapeís fiction is perfect: it takes two intrinsic human fears, turns one on its head, and allows the other so much room to breathe. In Planescape, you play as a man who has already lost his entire memory, including that of his own identity, yet he can never escape this dreadful state.

Omikron: The Nomad Soul (PC)

Omikron: The Nomad Soul review (PC)

Reviewed on December 30, 2011

In The Nomad Soul, you donít play as any of the main characters. Instead, you play as all of them. Sort of. In fact, you play as a person playing a computer game, in which the player plays as a soul who can transfer between different bodies. Yes. And itís all absolutely merrily acknowledged by the game. None of this is real, it tells you. Itís just a game.

Akane the Kunoichi (Xbox 360)

Akane the Kunoichi review (X360)

Reviewed on December 29, 2011

It all boils down to your ability to make use of very basic commands like jumping and attacking. Time your presses carefully and rule the day, but if you don't you can't blame unresponsive controls or faulty collision detection. If you think about it, it's so simple. Just hit two different buttons at the right times and you'll survive. It may be that simple, but it sure as hell isn't that easy.

Fallout: New Vegas (PC)

Fallout: New Vegas review (PC)

Reviewed on December 29, 2011

Fans of the Fallout series should not even read this, since they already have the Collector' s edition of the game, signed by the development team itself, with a complimentary brahmin figure sagely looking at them.

TaleSpin (NES)

TaleSpin review (NES)

Reviewed on December 27, 2011

In the first level, enemy planes try to ram you as you fly over large expanses of water dotted with oil platforms. Halfway through, you confront the infamous air pirate Don Karnage, who is hell-bent on ruining your day. You can't beat him yet, so you must evade his shots while pressing forward until he gives up.

Back to the Future: The Game (PlayStation 3)

Back to the Future: The Game review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 26, 2011

Back to the Future: The Game basically tries to be a fourth Back to the Future movie, and it tries hard. Everything about this game is a reference to the movies. Some of the music from the movies is used in the soundtrack, there are plenty of references to all three films scattered around the game world, and even the box art follows the template used by the posters for all three films. Christopher Lloyd reassumes the role of Doc Brown, and Marty McFly is played by a new actor (named A.J. LaCascio) who does an amazing job. Seriously, he sounds so much like a young Michael J. Fox, itís kind of eerie, especially in Episode 5 when Fox himself makes a cameo as one of Martyís ancestors and the two characters have a conversation.

Assassin's Creed (PlayStation 3)

Assassin's Creed review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 24, 2011

It's unfortunate that you have to chew through the boredom to get to the meaty parts. Assassin's Creed has very about it that's exciting or worthwhile. What few scenes that are are sandwiched between tedious activities and repetition. Without these activities, the game is too short; with them, the thrill is so intermittent that it's difficult to stay excited even when you get to the meaty parts.

Comic Jumper (Xbox 360)

Comic Jumper review (X360)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

Each stage is preceded by banter between Captain Smiley, Star (the character on his chest) and assorted other guests that include a wad of paper masquerading as a hero and a tattooed concubine who wears lovely fur garments. The dialog in this game is genuinely funny most of the time, and voiced to perfection. A few of the jokes do seem the slightest bit forced, but even the worst of the humor is so bad it's good.

Tropico 3 (Xbox 360)

Tropico 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

Sometimes, the amount of control that you have over your island is overwhelming. Tropico 3 was released first as a PC game, where sorting all of the available options and information must have felt quite natural, but the Xbox 360 controller has fewer buttons at its disposal. Face buttons bring up menus, which you can then further navigate using the bumper buttons.

Super Scribblenauts (DS)

Super Scribblenauts review (DS)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

If a puzzle gives you too much trouble, the game has a hint system in place. You can pay virtual currency to unlock new tips that supply varying degrees of assistance. Sometimes, the best hints will flat out give you the answer, which may disappoint some. It's not a big deal, though, because most stages can be repeated. The only way to get a gold crown for such stages is to play through it three consecutive times while using different phrases on every attempt.

Sports Champions (PlayStation 3)

Sports Champions review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

Sports Champions features six games: disc golf, beach volleyball, archery, table tennis, gladiator duel and bocce. Each included option offers depth and precision. You'll have to work harder to get everything out of these offerings than you would if you were playing Wii Sports, but each one is more substantial than Nintendo's entire package. None of the activities are particularly imposing, either.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (Xbox 360)

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World review (X360)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

Perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that the levels in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World often feel like they were borrowed from classic fare such as Final Fight, Double Dragon and River City Ransom. There is a gratuitous number of cracked sidewalks, fire hydrants that spray water when you punch them, trash cans, park benches and bus stops. The attention to detail here is delightful.

Rock Band 3 (Xbox 360)

Rock Band 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

Rock Band 3 adopts a more complicated approach. You can start playing in a "Quick Play" mode, or you can go to a "Career" mode. Performance in one mode affects the options that you have in the other mode. Each song you play can earn you fans, and having enough fans allows you to increase the range of your tours, which eventually leads to more fame, more fans and more gear for your custom band.

NBA Jam (Wii)

NBA Jam review (WII)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

When you play the new NBA Jam, the first thing you're likely to notice is that very little has changed. The team names aren't all the same, of course. There have been additions, removals and modifications that reflect the most recent activity in the league. There are no Seattle Supersonics now, for instance. The Charlotte Hornets have moved to New Orleans.

Mario Sports Mix (Wii)

Mario Sports Mix review (WII)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

You start fresh in each sport and you have to unlock every character and arena in each event. That means either playing 60 matches within that sport, which takes a lot of time, or it means playing through challenging hidden paths where the difficulty level is ratcheted up to an eventually absurd level that is made entirely too frustrating for most players within the gameís target audience because itís so cheap.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (Xbox 360)

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light review (X360)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

Besides puzzles, the game also offers a nearly perfect combat system. As Lara explores the fourteen stages in which her adventure unfolds, she'll do battle with all manner of monsters: gators, spiders, magicians, demons, skeletons and dinosaurs. She carries around a giant spear that she can toss repeatedly at her foes, her signature handguns and a whole arsenal of special weapons that she can acquire along the way.

Bloody Good Time (Xbox 360)

Bloody Good Time review (X360)

Reviewed on December 21, 2011

Bloody Good Time gets a hearty endorsement as a unique and very affordable take on the deathmatch idea. Between its sense of humour and the variety of strategies available, there's a lot of room for this to be a truly great game.
